Living What We Teach

Before we begin the Ascend and Transcend for Teacher program, I wanted to share some thoughts of how teaching during the pandemic transformed us as teachers.

In many ways, teaching during pandemic has us, as teachers, “Living What we Teach”.

As we switched modalities and formats, we experienced the same uncertainty, confusion, and development of new skills that we so commonly expect of our students.

Just as we expect our students to transform and grow, we experienced our own transformation and growth. May we take these changes forward with us.

How can we live up to the same expectations we place upon our students?

How may our relationship with students change when we embrace the idea that we are “living what we teach”?

Teaching as an Act of Transcendence

I will be starting an Ascend and Transcend series for teachers. For now, I would just like to introduce that idea that to be a teacher is to be involved in the act of transcendence.

I feel so many teachers (and others) overlook this aspect of teaching. For me, it reminds me of the sacred work that teaching is.
